Recent Warranty Parts Center reviews of headlamps replaced in the field show that some dealers have returned non-GM (counterfeit) headlamp
assemblies under warranty.
These non-GM headlamp assemblies (referred to as "knock-offs") are not made to GM specifications. Also, the appearance of these headlamp
assemblies are very close to the genuine parts. Refer to the figures below.
The figure above shows a non-GM or "knockoff" headlamp assembly. The lens stamping will read "EAGLE EYES." There are other companies that
manufacture replacement lamps that can be installed on a variety of GM vehicles.
These non-GM headlamp assemblies will not be honored under warranty. These are not original equipment and are not sanctioned as replacement
